Consumerism - [heck] yeah!

Lucky for us there is no need to amend our bad habits or make sacrifices... just buy "green"!

An Odd Day

"As Odd as it is, the day will be fine,
You see, it's the numbers 5,7, and 9.
Three odds in a row to tell you the date,
We've only three more, then a 90-year wait."

10 peso version.

Jay and I have pretty much failed at blogging these past two months. We'll try to do better in the future. To catch you up, I'll give you the 10 peso version.

We ate frozen bananas on sticks.

We burned candles.

We cancelled t.v.

We checked out the controversial/ever delayed MetroRail.

We listened to records.

We studied the basics of buying our first home.

We tried a new wine.

We discovered kale.

I went to San Antonio to visit a friend I made in Italy (who's wedding I'll be in this summer!)

We went to a kite festival.

We went kayaking on Town Lake...

...on a very windy day...

...and got front row seats to a crew race.

We watched people play on the "no swimming", a.k.a. "free swimming", side of Barton Springs.

We made friends with a swan.

We met the adorable owners of our favorite coffee shop.

We joined the crowds waiting to see the Congress bridge bats.

David and Alex came to visit.

We had an amazing weekend with our friends at Nigel and Hannah's wedding.

I got an internship at a local staffing agency doing payroll/whatever they want me to do.

We were tempted by our wedding cake.

Our cars were barely missed by a hailstorm that totaled others and prompted every car dealership to run ads announcing their "Hail Sale!"

We met Danny DeVito.

We made an offer on a house, but were beaten by a cash offer.

We missed Easter Mass because I had a fever and Jay didn't want to leave me when I felt so crummy. We settled with reading our "Christian Prayer" book.

Jay bought me "get well" flowers.

Jay turned into a dinosaur and tried to devour the ham before dinner Monday night.

A cute green lizard decided to make our balcony his home.

That brings us up to today. I've been sick all week, but am getting better. Jay is as busy as ever with work, but can "luckily" work from home in the evenings when I would rather him be home than in his office at work. We're looking forward to a funfilled weekend and will hopefully have more to post. 

Have a good rest of the week!

Coffee <3

cool, clear water fall
splashing into the machine
soon I smell coffee

I often doze off at night thinking about how lovely that first cup of coffee will be in the morning.

Same as it ever was

The phrase "Same as it ever was" is heard in our house almost on a daily basis. You might recognize the lyrics from 'Once In A Lifetime' by Talking Heads.

On a cold Saturday morning, we have found ourselves sitting in Jay's office (weekend work / accounting studying) listening to this NPR story on the making of 'Once In A Lifetime'.

We recommend at least watching the music video...

...same as it ever was
